What is a sigmoidoscopy?
A sigmoidoscopy is an examination of the rectum and the lower colon.
During the procedure, your physician will insert a scope into the intestines through the back passage. A scope is a small tupe with a miniature camera at its tip that can give us a good view of the colon lining.
If necessary, your physician can use a small instrument to take a tissue biopsy for further analysis. This won't hurt at all.
The sigmoidoscopy will take place at our Diagnostics and Treatment Center.
